2014 Clos Puy Arnaud, Côtes de Castillon (Previously $39)

SKU #1548154 92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Clos Puy Arnaud is terrific. Sweet red cherry, wild flowers, mint and white pepper give the wine a level of aromatic dimension that it did not show when it was in barrel. Silky, perfumed and exceptionally polished, the 2014 is simply impeccable today. A rush of dark red cherry and pomegranate fruit adds the closing shades of nuance in this striking, understated red. Clos Puy Arnaud is one of the sleepers of the vintage. The blend is 60 % Merlot, 35 % Cabernet Franc and 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

Outer quote mark Thierry Valette’s top selection from his Demeter-certified estate in Belves, this exceptional 2014 is 60 percent merlot, 35 percent cabernet franc and five percent cabernet sauvignon. The first word in my notes from the blind tasting is “dynamic” —this is an elegant wine is invested with energy from the careful biodynamic farming Valette has practiced since 2005. It’s delicious, and it lasts on fresh berry flavors, tightly structured, floral, zesty and clean. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Owner Thierry Valette has been around the Right Bank (the family owned Pavie and owns Troplong Mondot) and, as a consultant, the world. Here he offers a delicious juicy wine with fine tannins and ripe red fruits. It has mint and spice perfumes along with balanced acidity. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Clos Puy Arnaud has a ripe and pure bouquet with black cherries, iodine and violet aromas that do not hold back...and nor do you want them to. The palate is well balanced with succulent ripe black cherry and raspberry fruit, a crisp line of acidity, citrus fresh with a pretty finish. I love the hint of blood orange on the aftertaste! This is a cut above its peers and comes recommended. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)
